Follow Friday is a feature created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It's a fun blog hop where you meet other book bloggers and find people to follow.
Question: Do your reading habits change based on your mood? Do you read a certain genre if you are feeling depressed or happy?Of course my reading habits change based on my mood. Everything changes based on my mood. Whenever I feel like I'm in a rut (usually a reading-rut but sometimes a life rut) I tend to turn to the same books over and over. Song of the Lioness Quartet has been my go to "get-out-of-a-funk" series for years and years. When I find myself needing the perfect book, I turn to reliable authors and stories that I know won't disapoint.
My mood probably effects more what I don't read than what I do. When I'm feeling unhappy I try not read depressing books, no matter how good they are. So if someone died I wouldn't follow it up with The Fault In Our Stars because I would never stop crying. If I'm stressed or really busy I tend to like fluffier books like the Hex Hall series.
When I'm happy I just read everything. All the books! (Except for things I know I won't like).
As long as you're in the following mood (since it is follow friday and all!) why don't you follow me on twitter as well. And for the record I don't always tweet about the Olympics...only during the Olympics (and the trials...and...).
